A UA student called university police Wednesday after someone broke into his car and stole items from him while the car was parked on the UA campus, reports stated.

The student said he parked his 1997 Nissan pickup truck at 1130 N. Mountain Ave. at about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday and when he returned to it at about 12:15 a.m. Wednesday he noticed his doors were unlocked, reports stated.

He opened the door and noticed his dome light didn't come on and he checked the interior of the truck for missing items, reports stated.

The man said he then noticed his Pioneer CD/AM/FM stereo, MTX amplifier and Rockford Fosgate subwoofer speaker were missing from the cab of the truck, reports stated.

He told police he thought he locked all the doors when he left his truck but that he may have left one unlocked, reports stated. There were no signs of forced entry.

The stereo is valued at an estimated $250; the amplifier is valued at an estimated $280 and the speaker is valued at an estimated $200, reports stated.

No fingerprints or evidence were found on or near the car, and the student said he didn't see anyone suspicious in the area, reports stated.

Police contacted a UA student Wednesday after a UA Parking and Transportation employee called police because the employee noticed someone had broken into and attempted to steal items from the student's truck, reports stated.

The student said he parked his truck in the Cherry Avenue parking garage, 1651 E. Enke Dr., at about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, reports stated.

When he returned to his 1997 Ford Ranger at about 6:47 a.m. Wednesday he noticed his driver side window was missing, reports stated.

An officer went to the garage to speak with the man and noticed pry marks on the rubber sealing above the window that are consistent with the use of a screwdriver to pop the window out, reports stated.

The student said he then checked his truck for missing items and found that everything was still in the truck. The console where his car stereo is mounted was damaged as whoever entered his vehicle attempted and failed to remove the stereo, reports stated.

No fingerprints or further evidence were found at the scene and the man said he didn't see anyone suspicious in the area, reports stated.
